Conservatives Focus On the Past

OK, when I saw this headline at the Austin American-Statesman, “Perry to address CPAC conference” I had to ask myself this question: Why?

Isn’t he out of the presidential nomination race? Didn’t he prove to the nation that he had no qualifications to be president? That he is an ignorant slob?

Hey, I thought so. But not the case. And the reason this is not the case is that the Conservative Political Action Conference, to convene on February 9th in Washington, DC cannot get past the past.

I read on, and saw the list of invited speakers:
“Other speakers at CPAC 2012, which will focus on training activists and developing strategies in hopes of defeating President Barack Obama in November, include former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and many of Perry’s former opponents for the GOP presidential nomination - Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann.”

Oh please…Michelle Bachmann? Herman Cain? Perry? SARAH PALIN???

What is it with these people? Each and every one of the above named have either been outted as womanizers, crazies, cranks, or downright fools. CPAC loves them all, though.

But you know who CPAC loves the most? Yep, you guess it. They love them some Ron Paul. Ron Paul won the CPAC straw poll in 2011. Ron Paul.

CPAC is about as relevant to this election as Abraham Lincoln’s stance on the Russo-Japanese War of 1905.
